Description Parag Warudkar 2002-12-30 12:50:23 UTC
Description of problem:
Current rawhide kernel kernel-2.4.20-0.pp.9.athlon keeps crashing
with endless oops messages on the terminal. When booted with kernel
commandline apm=off, it does boot fine.
The oops logs scroll too fast on the terminal, so nothing can be captured. 
Machine is a Laptop - Sony VAIO PCG-FX705 with AMD mobile Athlon Processor 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade dependencies.
2. Install new kernel
3. Boot without apm=off.
Actual results:
Recursively OOPS

Expected results:
Should have booted fine.

Additional info:
Boots fine with apm=off kernel commandline.

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-12-30 13:03:22 UTC
did older kernels work ?
if not, can you attach dmidecode output (dmidecode is in the kernel-utils rpm)

Comment 2 Parag Warudkar 2002-12-30 13:25:20 UTC
Old kernels used to work. The 2.4.18-14 kernel shipped with Psyche works fine 
even with apm on.
OOPS is recursive and scrolls very fast. Also there are no traces of the OOPS 
after I reboot with apm=off.
Do you still need dmidecode output?
Let me know if you need some more info.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-18 00:12:08 UTC
Yes, dmidecode output would be good if this behavior continues with recent kernels.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-07-28 22:05:07 UTC
Please reopen if this persists with current kernels.
